Ahhhhh Chinooks!

Grant and I snuggled - the kids on the sleigh

the kids enjoying the snow - Avery in the fort!

Chinooks are one of the best things about living in Southern Alberta. We have had an unusually cold and snowy winter for down here. I am used to it because where I grew up, there was snow for at least five months a year, and sometimes even six! anyhoo, it has been too cold to do anything much outside, but the wind howled last night, and drifted our yard something fierce. so we bundled up in our snow gear and headed out to the "back" yard. Grant built a fort for the kids (he says kids, but I really think it was for him!) and the drifts were big enough for the kids to think they were sledding down some huge hill! It was a great morning!
